I think if the activities of The Energy Task Force under Bush were disclosed there would be even more people blaming him (even though he's not totally responsible).

    I also love how conservatives are so quick to denounce "Bush's fault" allegations, but blamed Bill Clinton for 9/11! Totally different circumstances there
    Did I call you a "liberulll"??? No, didn't think so.

    You are right, some people do act like the last 8 years didn't happen... and some like you pretend there was no federal government BEFORE 2000.

    You would be better served to list the deregulations Bush supposedly implemented rather than posting platitudes.

    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 allowed oil companies to exploit numerous loopholes in regulatory laws, and it is widely believed that this bill was a result of Dick Cheney's infamous "Energy Task Force" meetings. Don't believe me though, go read the House Energy and Commerce Committee's investigation on the matter.

    Still waiting for an answer to this question from the Rev or anyone else who'd like to answer it.

    That would come under the Jones Act of 1920. The offer is still on the table, will require Obama to sign a waiver allowing foreign flagged ships to participate. The last waiver signed was by Bush in the wake of Katrina. By signing a waiver he (Obama) may consider it stepping on Union toes.

    Canada, Norway and the UK require relief wells to be drilled along side the primary well?

    You're going to have to prove that one, friend. I'm calling bull****!

    Wow! Union concerns? Really? This isn't the time to be playing politics with the Union destroyers of this country.

    So far, what I see is nothing but Obama wanting to take credit for any successes, and finger point all the inaction, and criticism.

    If this were any other President, he would be pilloried in the press by now.

    Oh and while the Gulf is destroyed, the priority is to not step on Union toes!
